Kids “Identifying” as Animals?

Animals

Once you enter Alice’s crazy world, anything is possible; reality is gone, the whole thing is weird, filled with mad hatters, talking cards, changes in size, unchanging clocks, and clever rabbits. Now, after the left has turned boys into girls, girls into boys, some with hormone therapy, they push a new idea. They are pushing to let kids “identify as animals.” 

It would be laughable, a dystopian, fictional craziness – if it were not true. They are pushing the concept – with bizarre sexual overtones – of a “furry,” a child identifying as an animal.

When first told schools were encountering this, from Maine to Wisconsin, the thought was humorous, like Halloween year-round, dressing up, so-and-so thinking he or she is a zebra or giraffe. 

But when speaking with teachers, the hard reality hit me – kids are being allowed to suspend all reference to reality, integrate into their thinking not only the idea that a girl can become a boy or boy become a girl – and win at sports that way – but they can now become an animal, by will.

Looking at medical literature, in addition to speaking with teachers and reading news stories, I learned the indulgence of such mental health issues – normalizing the abnormal – is entering medical literature.

Wrote one medical journal, part of NIH’s National Library of Medicine: “Furries are individuals who are especially interested in anthropomorphic or cartoon animals …They often strongly identify with anthropomorphic animals and create ‘fursonas,’ identities of themselves as those anthropomorphic animals… Some practice ‘fursuiting,’ or wearing costumes that resemble anthropomorphic animals.” See The “Furry” Phenomenon: Characterizing Sexual Orientation, Sexual Motivation, and Erotic Target Identity Inversions in Male Furries;

Further: “Furries have been portrayed as sexually motivated in the media and popular culture, although little empirical research has addressed this issue.” Of course, the left needs that, too. 

The rest of the article – and those like it – spun into the bizarre. The point that stuck is the agenda of the left, in both education and medicine. The left is seeking to “normalize” abnormal identities – ideas damagingly misleading, mentally challenging, distorting youth perceptions. 

How much more manipulable is a child who grows up thinking reality is not fixed, that imaginary things work out, like a Marxist utopia? The twists being used now are many, and in many ways cruel, like hormone therapies forced on small children.

Still, there is a common theme. Each idea is more extreme than the last, until the whole dividing line between real and unreal blurs, with (literally) 64 genders, and now it seems animal identities.

The central question is – how far does this dangerous fictionalizing of life, biology, gender, identity, societal norms go? How, absurd must society become before parents say, “stop it.”

Surprisingly, this “furry” phenomenon is not as uncommon as one might suspect. The body of literature is growing up around the idea, and teachers who try to get these kids to return to reality are often viewed as being insensitive. 

Justifications are varied, from tolerance for difference and analogies to gender self-identification to autism. In one school, a denial was issued – covered by the New York Times – that “furries” did not get “litter boxes.”  Logical right? Bathrooms for kids who think they are cats? A where, one wonders, are their parents? See, e.g., Help! My Kid Is A Furry, What Do I Do?Let’s Talk About Furries; Why Are So Many Gen Z Kids Becoming Furries?Litter Boxes for Students Who Identify as Furries? Not So, Says School Official.

Likely, this fad will pass – and some of the others may also – but not until average, hard-working, family-oriented, work-centered, value-focused, history- and reality-respecting parents say “enough!”  So much of what the left pushes out is indefensible yet gets allowed.

Last week, the US Senate confirmed a justice to the US Supreme Court who could not define a “woman,” and she is one. Is hat not three steps from declining to distinguish between child and animal?

In the end, logic, science, history, reason, law, and love of our children will likely rescue our society from the downdraft of nonsense masquerading as reality, from 64 genders going to 84, and we will get topside again, out from the underground that is Alice’s odd world.

But that also depends on balanced, logical, scientific, morally grounded people speaking up and declaring a spade a spade, shall we say. Teachers who need support for keeping reality front-and-center need help from parents, grandparents, and schoolboards. And they need help too!

What this new (likely passing) oddity points to is a titanic battle in society for the proper definition of reality, a battle between those who want to distort facts, biology, reality, politics, and laws for their own gain and those who respect reality – and a seminal fact, that society’s survival depends on keeping a grip on reality.

Let’s end on a happier note. Fads come and go, and Americans have long resisted appeals from radicals and Marxists to throw over what we know as reality. Bugs Bunny, the Road Runner, Tom & Jerry, all the rest are funny, chiefly because they are not real. Let’s keep it that way! “Thhhhat’s all folks!”

Um, the litter boxes thing is a bit much, but if you identify as an animal, (a), I do to, and be who you are, n matter what discrimination you get, (b) It’s called being a therian, not a furry. A furry is someone who roleplays as an animal. For fun. And (c) You have NO RIGHT to call therians (or furries, for that matter) Insane or mentality ill. It’s rude, and you people need to be more kind. Just because you don’t understand doesn’t mean it doesn’t make sense, and this article shows how little you people understand us.

This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever heard of! And our schools are promoting it?!? Who or what is this administration thinking?!? When I was in school, you got sent home if your skirt was too short or the boys if their hair was too long. This is scary to say the least.

When blacks can identify as whites, change their SSN to reflect it and apply for loans, car and home financing with the same outcome as whites then the left would have done something. Let’s work on that.

My 12 year old granddaughter told me about a few “furries” coming into her school this year. She said she is afraid of them and creeped out, in her words. This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of! How can the schools allow this? They go to school to learn. They have a dress code yet allow this crap? Oh please!! God help the USA!! We have gone down hill fast. They are human not animals.

The chance of this being true is less than the Armenian genocide being a real thing.

It makes you wonder about Timothy Pastol being born to real human parents, the chance of this being true is less than him being born from an animal.

I wondered if this might be a “thing” and found this article this morning. I’m thinking that there could be a mindset that animals are so much “kinder” than human beings that some may choose to “identify” as such. Truth is, animals are not “kind” or “not kind”. They live by instinct. I fear this idea could catch on, all in an attempt for overall kindness and compassion, with an anti-human theme being central

As for gender, you either have a ding-a-ling (male) or you don’t (female) – PERIOD!

All I can think of is – computer games. Too many kids spend the majority of time on these stupid, unrealistic games! And parents let them. Often parents are into them as well. I’ve seen it. People lose their ability to communicate and have no interest in anything but those stupid games!

This is in the curriculum for Red Lion Elementary School near York, PA for next year. They are going to have pee pads and litter boxes available for students who identify as animals.

this is a true statement, the schools up here in Syracuse are putting litter boxes in a few schools (those of you know what schools) this is pathetic, and demoralizing to anyone. Any parent that indulges this kind of behavior needs to take a parenting class to so they can take care of their children (HUMAN) children.

How easy is it for a reality thinking tyrant to come along and round up all these unrealistic identifying folks, living in their own fantasy land and put them all in a camp where they can be manipulated and tortured to do the bidding of the tyrant? Virtual reality come alive! No longer a syfy novel or show!

Some children are identifying as inanimate objects as well. So then, when they ‘transform’ into, say a doll, then they can’t talk, eat, work, etc…. Can you imagine your sales clerk, all of a sudden, go inanimate? So then these people can’t work a job or function in society. It is mental illness.

If your child actually believes that inanimate object is a gender identity and becomes immobile to the point of not thinking or eating…they deserve to starve to death because your DNA is not strong enough to survive natural selection.

This is a sad sad country we live in….the manipulation and brainwashing that has lingered since the Billary administration is beyond words. The moral compass has been destroyed and to get it back to some sort of normalcy, yes normalcy is going to take a lot of perseverance by parents, law-makers, teachers, clergy, and community leaders. The sexual aspect being imposed on children at young ages is deplorable, but if you are faithful, you know that is the work of Satan and his followers. To change one’s gender is against nature and will at some point pose a huge problem either mentally, physically and emotionally.

This just saddens me to no end and I pray that many come to their senses before we have fake animals running the government and believe me there will be more tragedy to come if society does not turn to God!

If we encourage kids (or anyone) to identify as something else, we are actually telling them that they are not ok as they are…

Agreed. And in truth, we are telling them that they aren’t okay when teaching that the “sins of their ancestors” still live on through them. Guilt and shame has terrible results, possibly as coping mechanisms. They hate who they are, and are told what they are every day. What happened to teaching that one is responsible for one’s own actions, and for no one else’s? Such irresponsibility!
